The Green Bay Packers are going to be without wide receiver Randall Cobb for quite “a while.”
With Davante Adams back in action, the Packers should be just fine, but they will be missing a player that just started to get going.
Cobb posted his best game of the season against the Los Angeles Rams in the Packers’ Week 12 matchup. He totaled 95 receiving yards.
Having played with Rodgers for eight years prior, Cobb returned this offseason after a two-year stint elsewhere. He’s having a solid season and has become a reliable target for his long-time quarterback, so this injury could give the opportunity to someone else.
That said, the first report of Cobb’s injury was broken by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“Cobby’s going to out for a while,” Packers’ HC Matt LaFleur told reporters. “He had a pretty significant injury.”
Cobb played for the Kentucky Wildcats from 2008-2010.
On the season, he has totaled 375 yards in 12 games and 3 starts. As for Cobb and Rodgers, the receiver totaled his only Pro Bowl season with the quarterback in 2014, so the relationship shouldn’t be hurt by Cobb’s absence.
